Helping to detect gastrointestinal disorders, the Gastrolyzer® range offers accurate hydrogen breath testing. Hydrogen and methane breath testing can be used to help detect and investigate gastrointestinal disorders such as lactose intolerance, among other sugar intolerances, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
A portable, non-invasive breath analysis device which, by measuring levels of hydrogen, methane and oxygen in the breath, can accurately help in detectionand investigation of a range of gastrointestinal disorders such as lactose intolerance, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
World Health estimates that 65% of the world's adult population suffer from some form of lactose intolerance1. Most monitors measure hydrogen alone, which identifies less than 50% of sufferers2 . Methane is detected in 30%-50% of the healthy adult population worldwide3. Traditional methods require invasive testing, which is expensive, uncomfortable and time-consuming. Breath testing is a more cost-efficient and patient friendly method as it is non-invasive with quicker results4.
Quicker than more conventional methods, low maintenance, instant results, with patient management software. The Gastrolyzer® range of hydrogen and methane breath testing monitors are the ideal tools for doctors, dietitians and gastroenterologists.
Quick, easy and accurate results with non invasive hydrogen and methane breath testing means the patient can be diagnosed and have their symptoms treated quicker and more efficiently than more conventional methods.
The only methane and hydrogen monitor to provide patient management workflow software. The Gastrolyzer® range is renown for delivering quick and accurate hydrogen breath testing, backed up by methane testing, and is cited by clinical leaders in gastroenterology such as Robert Heuschal and Way Seah Lee.
GastroCHART™ is a FREE patient management system for your Microsoft Windows computer, for use with the Bedfont® Gastrolyzer® range of hydrogen and methane breath monitors. This system will revolutionise the way you schedule patients and maximise the amount of testing you can perform in one clinic. GastroCHART™ allows you to pre-set the patient information and test type they will be performing (i.e. Lactose, Fructose, Glucose, etc). The system will then use the pre-set testing intervals, or intervals of your choice, to alert patients when their next breath test is due. When each breath test is performed, results are automatically recorded in the patient’s records, which can be saved or printed.
Once the full testing is complete, a line graph will be populated showing the patients results with a positive result threshold line for interpretation.
